gPotato’s free-to-play fantasy MMORPG game, Allods Online, has a new premium feature in place today; offering players the opportunity to avoid the pay-to-win problems with a pay-to-play server. As with many free MMO games today Allods Online comes under regular fire for its approach to micro-transactions with many players accusing the developers of making the game pay-to-win; a term that represents online games that give players huge advantages if they spend cash on premium items.
The brand new server removes all micro-transactions from the game and the bonuses linked with them including Runes, Elixirs and Strongbox bonuses, to give players the opportunity to play the game how it was meant to be played. It’s a bit of strange move as players that are likely to purchase premium items probably don’t want to lose the benefits and those not willing to use micro-transactions are probably not the type to subscribe either.
The new server, Goblin Republic, offers a few other changes from the typical Allods Online experience. Players can enjoy a 30% increase in experience gain, twice as many stat points per level and mounts that don’t need feeding.
